Buddha Garden

Songs that uplift, broaden and deepen.

Buddha Garden features exquisite acoustic guitar and sitar playing by Parijat, a virtuoso from Germany who was deeply influenced by his travels to India. His music showcases his supple fretwork over the occasional sound of rushing water and atmospheric synth. But even though the music is light, it is not lightweight: Parijat is quite adept at composing songs that uplift, broaden and deepen, making the sum total both enervating yet calming.
